    A simple example of how to append the raw image URLs to the content of any post or page that has at least one gallery.

     add_filter( 'the_content', 'wpdocs_show_gallery_image_urls' );
     * Show image URLs below the content
    function wpdocs_show_gallery_image_urls( $content ) {
    	global $post;
    	// Only do this on singular items
    	if( ! is_singular() )
    		return $content;
    	// Make sure the post has a gallery in it
    	if( ! has_shortcode( $post->post_content, 'gallery' ) )
    		return $content;
    	// Retrieve the first gallery in the post
    	$gallery = get_post_gallery_images( $post );
    	$image_list = '<ul>';
    	// Loop through each image in each gallery
    	foreach( $gallery as $image_url ) {
    		$image_list .= '<li>' . '<img src="' . $image_url . '">' . '</li>';
    	$image_list .= '</ul>';
    	// Append our image list to the content of our post
    	$content .= $image_list;
    	return $content;
